Google Lets Users Store More Files Online

Date January 13, 2010

For years I’ve worried about storage and losing files. I’ve been online continually since 1992 now and have way too many files. Everything anymore to me are zeros and ones, and a few years ago I moved to Google tools for most everything. I am a Google whore, just short of flying to a Google […]

Google Labeler

Date February 13, 2009

My colleague, Shelley, and I were presenting on Embracing Chaos this weekend at the regional Lang & Lit conference, and I came across the Google Image Labeler.

Google docs gets an update

Date March 27, 2008

Last night I was grading and went to refresh Google docs. Suddenly everything looked a little different, and I suddenly realized they made a format change that gave me several options I’d been praying for before bed for months. Where to begin? Page breaks – Google docs now let’s the user set his or her […]
